Judicial Reform in Kenya's Southern Rift Valley

The Journal of Legal Pluralism and Unofficial Law published in 2015 a study titled "Access to Justice, Impunity and Legal Pluralism in Kenya" by Jurg Helbling, Walter Kalin and Prosper Nobirabo.  The authors argue that legal pluralism reforms of the judiciary aimed at facilitating access to justice are suitable to address cases of functional impunity if such reforms manage to restore the trust of people in state institutions.  They are likely to fail where the reasons for impunity and its underlying conflicts are structural in nature.
